On an evening in Los Angeles”s Skylight Books, a blogger by the name of Emily Pullen snapped a picture where a human posed with a book cover. This pose created a surreal, hilarious image. Now, six years later and on the other side of the country, she continues this tradition in Brooklyn and on her blog, Corpus Libris.
Some of them are downright hilarious, and some work surprisingly well…almost a little too well.
The blog today shows people from around the world holding books so that the cover art blends in with the actual world. The results are quite funny. While it started small, the blog now accepts submissions. You can now share an image of yourself or your friends posing with (and becoming part of) your favorite books.
